There are two slight variations on the Holi myths; whether Krishna painted Radha’s face in mischief or whether he got Radha to paint his face (Either way, one painted the other and that’s the story of how this tradition came about). 🎉 Happy Holi! 🎉 . . . #WorldatWarwick
🎨What do the Holi colours mean? 🤔🤓💭 . . . Red = Love and Passion Yellow = Happiness Blue = Calmness and Serenity Green = New beginnings Pink = Joy and Vibrancy #WorldatWarwick
🌈💕One of the Holi myths tells of Hindu deities Radha and Krishna. Krishna (who has blue skin) fell in love with Radha, but was worried their difference in colour would keep them apart. His mother encouraged Krishna to ask Radha to paint his face any colour she liked, to make him less self-conscious of his blue skin. This is how the Holi colours tradition came about. . #WorldatWarwick
